Thread: Favorite genre?
04-09-2009, 01:05 PM #1
Hey guys, just curious what your favorite genres are, besides VGM :P I think it's important to have a variety of musical interests, so I started this thread.
Just name what genres you like and some artists that you enjoy, if you want.
My personal favorite genres are trance, alternative, R&B, metal/hardcore, jazz fusion, and of course VGM. Probably a couple more but those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head

I'm also a pretty big filmscore buff - John Williams is the best there is. Jerry Goldsmith and Basil Poledouris are also favourites of mine. I have to say though (with the chance of becoming unpopular) I really hate the music from "Remote Control". Especially Steve Jablonsky, Klaus Badelt and Hans Zimmer - It's all stappy strings and poweranthems for horns. Though I do like Badelt's "The Time Machine" - the first half anyway.
Other than that, it's mostly classical, especially eastern european and Russian composers, like Stravinsky, Dvorak and Mussorgsky.
I also listen to rock from the "British Invasion" era.

I forgot to mention that I enjoy classical; Rachmaninov is my favorite classical artist by far.
Lol, and I do also like soundtracks from movies, yes John Williams is the best! Although I'm not a fan of Harry Potter I think it's main theme is amazing (I believed it was composed by Williams).
And I'm glad that people here don't like rap. can't stand that shat
